Yiyun Li Interview


Set in China in the late 1970’s, Yiyun Li has written a stunning debut novel with unforgettable characters that haunt you long after you have finished reading the book. The love story between Nini a crippled girl and Bashi a sinister predator is an example of the unusual way in which Li views life, in a world of oppression and pain and forces us to reconsider our values . Yiyun came to me and impressed me with her high intelligence and fine command of English. This is a very different book with a very different world view. . . listen to our interview. . . I believe you will be hearing much more from this talented author.
